Posted by Shane Dickson (Oregon Slacker), Dec 14, 2010 07:02
Rock Band 3 is by far one of the best sequels in the history of the follow up titles, it is by far the best, and most feature packed Rock Band yet. It is a perfect symphony of rhythm music games with real music making it an instant enjoyable game for those wanting to learn, become pro, have a rock band party, or even if you’re a solo act.
Rock Band 3 Basics
For starters, it of course has increased music tracks, new music library organization and share options, and even options to hide the music you don’t want to play, and/or rate your favourites based songs. Rock Band 3 also introduces the new keyboard controller, allowing you to not only smack the ivories on some of the best rock songs of the 80’s, but also allows you to match Elton John’s Tommy-Esque Pinball Wizard tactics on any song you choose (meaning you can choose to play the keyboard on any guitar and bass lines if you so choose). The new addition of Pro Modes lets you take the game further then previous titles by adding more sophisticated playing modes for drums, guitar, or even the new keyboard if you so choose. Rock Band 3 has also increased capabilities to expand your band up to 7 players at time, including keyboard, drums, guitar, bass, and up to three vocalists.
Let’s kick off the review with an in-depth look at the new features, starting with the Music library changes. The new redesigned music library system allows users to create custom playlists, save these set lists, and even share them with friends, They’ve also included filters to make it easier to locate your favourite songs that you want to play, and hide those that you don’t. there is a 5 star personal recommendation system which allows you to suggest tracks from your entire music library based on your own track preference.
